Best of Art Colony Cered
The last exhibition of 2023 will present a selection of the best works of the Hungarian art colony Art Colony Cered. The exhibition will showcase a curated selection of the best sculptures, installations, prints, textiles and photographs from the recent themed summer symposia that take place annually in the Hungarian village of Cered. Founding figures from the older generation – conceptual and textile artist Cecilia Kun and graphic designer László Sánta – will be presented, as well as other artists – sculptor Pál Németh, conceptual artists Szabina Péter and Eszter Pálik, photographer Agóta Krnács, Slovak sculptor and coordinator Jozef Suchoža.
Art Colony Cered is an artistic and intellectual creative workshop founded in 1996 in Hungary, which aims to strengthen the social, sociological, economic and cultural role of contemporary art, not only in metropolises but also in regional peripheries. It seeks to preserve local folklore wealth, but also to foster new creative, technological and material processes and to present important artists in joint meetings, exhibition projects and printed publications. The connection between the Zlín environment and the Hungarian art association Art Colony Cered is greater than it may seem. For decades, one of the teachers of the FMC TBU, the author of the objects Vladimír Kovařík, has been coming to Cered, and many of the aforementioned artists have been participating in the Panta Rhei symposium, which our faculty has been organising for almost two decades.
The curators behind the selection are Jozef Suchoža (Academy of Arts in Banská Bystrica) and Miroslav Zelinský (FMK UTB in Zlín).
The opening of the exhibition Best of Art Colony Cered will take place on Wednesday, 6 December 2023 at 6 pm.
The exhibition will then run from 7 December 2023 to 1 February 2024. Admission to the gallery is free for all, opening hours are Monday to Thursday 1-6 pm.
